Leicester scientists-produce plastic from eggshells

CNN reported that scientists from the University of Leicester are currently working on a project creating plastic from eggshells.

The aim of the current project is to adapt the proteins found in egg shells called glycosaminoglycans to create a starch-based plastic that could then “bulk up” existing plastics and be turned into anything from shop fitting to supermarket meal trays. One aim is for recycled shell to be used in protective packaging for eggs.

Just Egg, a UK-based mayonnaise and hard-boiled egg manufacturer, uses around 1.3 million eggs every week, creating around 10 tons of eggshell waste. According to the firm, it spends approximately £30,000 ($48,000) each year sending nearly 500 tons of shells to landfills.

Therefore if the egg shells could be recycled it would be environmentally better and could save on waste management.

30 Jobs to be Created – Lancashire Recycling Plant

A waste recycling plant is set to be opened in Darwen, Lancashire, pending approval by the council, reports the BBC.

SITA UK, who are developing the £5 million site believe the project will create up to 30 jobs at a site on Lower Eccleshill Road. The Materials Recycling Facility is designed to sort 35,000 tonnes of material annually, including plastic, cans, card and paper from Lancashire commercial businesses, rather than household waste.

The plans for the site are expected to be sent to the Council by the end of August in order to develop the facility as soon as possible. The facility will allow for materials to be unloaded, sorted and bailed within the site, excluding glass, which will have to be sorted outside in a specially designed area.
